It’s that time of the year again when we start the New Year with fresh new resolutions, goals, and all feeling hopeful to accomplish many things. I too fall in this bucket.
I’m proud to say that over the past 4 years, I’ve kept majority of my resolutions and now have high expectations to continue this streak for as long as possible.
Here’s how I do it:
- Think of realistic and achievable goals: I do like to push myself, so I usually have a mix of easy (e.g. eat healthy) and challenging (e.g. go on multiple media cleanses for a full day) goals.
- Write them all down. I also try to be as specific as possible.
- I check back. This helps me make sure I’m staying on track.
- Set smaller goals. I do this if I realize I haven't made any progress during my check-ins. For example, for my media cleanse, I might start with turning off my phone for half a day or limiting myself to answering text/calls. Goodbye, social media (for a day)!
For this website of mine, in addition to keeping up with my regular food and travel posts, one of my goals is to write a minimum of one blog post a month. This will be a reflection post, a lesson learned, or a goal I hope to achieve that month. And so, here’s the first of my many blog posts.
Hope 2017 is off to a great start for you.
I’ll talk to you again soon,
